Begonias are amongst some of the most popular annual flowers along with geraniums. However, they’re not often considered for hanging baskets- which is a shame! Their delicate, layered flowers stand out brightly against the dark green foliage, and the whole plant will gently overflow over the sides, creating a whimsical and elegant look.
Begonias are easy to care for, even in hanging baskets. They enjoy shade, making them perfect for a shady patio or area of your backyard that doesn’t get much sun. They bloom all throughout the summer. Their soil should be kept relatively moist, but not soggy- they shouldn’t be allowed to sit in water, as this will cause them to rot.
